The Scottish Wildlife Trust looks to only make ethical investments.
In line with our Investment Policy, the Trust avoids investing in companies which directly conflict with the Trust’s vision, mission and values.
We instruct our fund managers to avoid certain types of companies including those involved in fossil fuel extraction, those known to test products on animals for cosmetic purposes, those involved with the production of harmful pesticides or those who, after screening, we consider to be having a significant negative impact on the world’s forests, wetlands, marine and other important habitats.
We will also seek to avoid investing in companies that do not have a sustainable procurement policy or a willingness to develop one.
The Scottish Wildlife Trust will seek to proactively invest in companies which:
- Are signed up to the Natural Capital Protocol
- Score highly on the Vigeo Eiris index
